Destiny Is Not a Matter of Chance

Destiny is not a matter of chance.
It is a matter of choice.
It is not a thing to be waited for,
it is a thing to be achieved.

William Jennings Bryan

I love this. It annoys me when everything good or bad that happens is accredited to some destiny that by luck or chance grabs you up. It is up to each of us to pick our path. Our choices are our destiny. Sorry, well done.
